Improving the Reading Skills of Adolescents.
Holloway, John H.
Educational Leadership, v57 n2 p80-81 Oct 1999
A 1996 study attributed adolescent remedial readers' low comprehension to poor motivation, lack of experience, and egocentricity. Secondary teachers can help by connecting reading assignments to real-world learning experiences, providing self-directed activities, and inviting collaborative learning and varied self-expression. A San Diego program is profiled. (MLH)
